The 2008 Clos de la Maréchale was showing outstanding potential at the time of my visit. The really lovely and classic bouquet offers up a superb mélange of red and black cherries, a touch of game, a stunningly pure base of soil, a bit of new leather, woodsmoke and fresh herbs in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very, very suave on the attack, with sappy core of fruit, ripe tannins, excellent focus and balance and a very long, tangy and youthful finish. The inherent elegance of the 2008 vintage may well result in the finest vintage of Clos de la Maréchale yet produced by Monsieur Mugnier. Certainly this wine is dramatically different stylistically from the superb 2005, but it will be very interesting to see how these two vintages stack up against each other a couple of decades down the road.

The 2008 Nuits St. Georges Clos de la Marechale offers up black cherries, sweet spices, flowers and licorice, all of which meld together beautifully in a weightless, impeccably elegant style. Floral, minty notes add complexity and nuance on the refined finish. (AG) (5/2011)

In much the same fashion as the 2011 there is an herbal tea element to the super-fresh and beautifully elegant nose that strikes me as being right at an inflection point where the aromas are just beginning to turn toward the secondary. There is a really lovely underlying tension to the dense and much more mineral-driven medium weight flavors that also possess a sophisticated texture, all wrapped in an admirably long and balanced if ever-so-slightly lean finish that belies a trace of austerity. While this is nearing its apogee I would still be inclined to allow it just a few more years of cellaring first. (6/2017)
